This was posted on Facebook. I loved their answers. There were more than what I have listed here. Children, aged 4 to 8 years old, were asked “What is love?”

When my grandmother got arthritis, she couldn’t bend over and paint her toenails anymore. So my grandfather does it for her all the time, even when his hands got arthritis too. That’s love.’ Rebecca-age 8

‘When someone loves you, the way they say your name is different. You just know that your name is safe in their mouth.’ Billy – age 4

‘Love is when a girl puts on perfume and a boy puts on shaving cologne and they go out and smell each other.’ Karl – age 5

‘Love is when you go out to eat and give somebody most of your French fries without making them give you any of theirs.’ Chrissy – age 6

‘Love is what makes you smile when you’re tired.’ Terri – age 4

‘Love is when my mommy makes coffee for my daddy and she takes a sip before giving it to him, to make sure the taste is OK.’ Danny – age 8

‘Love is like a little old woman and a little old man who are still friends even after they know each other so well.’ Tommy – age 6

‘During my piano recital, I was on a stage and I was scared. I looked at all the people watching me and saw my daddy waving and smiling. He was the only one doing that. I wasn’t scared anymore.’ Cindy – age 8

Love is when your puppy licks your face even after you left him alone all day.’ Mary Ann – age 4

‘You really shouldn’t say ‘I love you’ unless you mean it. But if you mean it, you should say it a lot. People forget.’ Jessica – age 8

God has shared his words of love and comfort with us many times throughout His Word.

John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten son that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.

1 John 4:7-10 Beloved, let us love one another: for love is of God; and everyone that loveth is born of God, and knoweth God.

He that loveth not knoweth not God; for God is love.

In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten son into the world that we might live through him.

Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his son to be the propitiation for our sins.

1 John 4:19 We love him, because he first loved us.

It is truly wonderful for me to know God’s love and have him in my heart. He has helped me through many trials and temptations. Please, feel free to share your stories of God’s love to you. ~Connie
